Seat Assignment
In early April we will begin offering seats to new students based on our admissions priorities, qualification and seat availability. Once AISG begins offering seats in early April, grades may fill up quickly. We will continue to accept applications after the first round of seat assignments, however applications may be subject to seat availability.

If your child qualifies for admissions and there are no seats available in the grade level or program, he/she will be placed in our waitpool. As seats become available during the school year, we will offer them to students in the waitpool according to our admissions priorities. You must submit your application and your child must qualify for admissions, before your child is placed in the waitpool.
